Salter Oval incident will not threaten clubs' participation

SUNDAY'S incident at Salter Oval will not directly influence Fraser Coast clubs' participation in future competitions.

Queensland Rugby League is currently working with Bundaberg Junior Rugby League to review the incident.

The Chronicle received several messages from parents concerned their children's clubs would be expelled from the BJRL as a result of the incident.

QRL Central Division manager Glenn Ottaway said it would have "no direct bearing" on future competition structures.

"The incident on the weekend will have no direct bearing on the decision making around future competition structures in the region," Ottaway said.

"In reviewing the incident penalties will be applied to individuals that have acted inappropriately."
